Meet the Trainer

Christina Semerad: Instructor and trainer

  • Desert Trails owner and trainer is Christina Semerad, who has been involved with horses since starting as a child rider in Oregon, and moving to Arizona 18 years ago. Christina began riding and showing hunters at age 6, riding under several well known PNW trainers such as Joan Curtin, Brad Laird, and Jeff Cook. After attending Meredith Manor Equestrian College in West Virginia, and Oregon State University, she began teaching lessons and training horses professionally in her 20's. Desert Trails Horsemanship was started in Arizona in 2009, and has become a recognizable name on the local show circuit with successful riders and ponies bringing home lots of awards.


Located in sunny Chandler, Arizona, Desert Trails Horsemanship is committed to bringing along aspiring young hunter jumper riders, with a focus on safety and good sportsmanship.
